CCF - For "Wrong Week"




This is a photo from Wrong Week blog that Jess put up for Constructive Critism :D It's a cute shot, but her littel girl was a bit 'in the dark'


I'm no expert but here's what I did;

In Gimp:
  • Added a screen layer
  • Added a very faded deep-red hue layer just to twist the colour of the background a little :D
  • Selected the child and made her a layer mask
  • added another screen layer just on her, followed by a 'grain merged' light brown layer

In Lightroom:
  • Auto tone
  • colour punch

In Gimp:
  • Add a frame
  • sharpen using smart-sharpen (faded out)

In PSE7:
  • made the before and after!!
Hope you like :D

I really like the child's face lightened up. Draws the focus to her better.

Thank you so much! I really like my daughter's face lightened up as well. I have both Lightroom (which I just got and don't know a thing about) and Photoshop, which I am still learning about. Can I ask what exactly is a layer mask and why did you turn my daughter into one in the photo?
